The absolute best chocolate chip cookies

When it comes to baking, there is nothing better than a recipe that promises 'The Best XYZ that you ever tried' and actually delivers, time after time.

This recipe can be found here and it's exactly that: 'The only chocolate chip cookie i will ever need to know how to make for the rest of my life', as the author put it. I totally agree. 

It's so worth a bit of a mess in your kitchen, and it's super easy to make, promise. 

Patience is indeed a key ingredient here, and i normally chill the dough for 2 days before the actual baking. Baking temperature that works best for me is 180C, with 12-15 minutes in the oven.

Must confess i found it challenging to stick to Secret 1 - mix of bread and cake flour. The latter is impossible to find in Copenhagen (if anyone knows where, please do let me know, thank you!), so instead i add the usual type. 

As for the chocolate that goes into it, i use my favourite Valhrona Le Noir 61% dark chocolate couverture instead of chocolate chips. I simply chop Valhrona 200 g bars with a large very sharp knife - super easy.  

And by the way, i normally use only half the size of all ingredients suggested in the recipe: less mess in the kitchen, and the output is still big enough to feed all your loved ones:)

Happy baking and enjoy your weekend !
